As my sister's off to the Economics Course in Italy, I and my family decided to spend the entire Sunday in Copenhagen. Apparently there is a modern art museum just outside Copenhagen (close to Ishøj) called Arken. I'm not much for modern art, but Louisiana (also in Denmark) actually does impress me… sometimes. Arken didn't. As it is called Arken it is designed as a boat, but it looks newly painted and smells funny although it has been there for some years.
Actually, my collapsed body in blood would have blended in like nothing else
To get to the coat room and the toilets you had to climb down stairs that looked like a fire escape and the toilets looked like small prisons. But now on to the art; their main exhibition (if you can call it that) was called Nordic Lights. I felt so dark I could have killed myself. Actually, my collapsed body in blood would have blended in like nothing else into that cold environment. I felt sick and my lens decided to pop out; the timing was perfect. My dad commented on a picture of a forest. He thought it great to name the photo Forrest. Then there was another picture of a boy doing a number one into a river. It was called Ohne title which roughly translates Untitled. Brilliantly imaginative. We left pretty soon, having laughed at how obscene it would have been to give the finger to the receptionist and say: "Finger".
We had already decided in beforehand to eat lunch at Sushi'n'Sticks. It doesn't sound fancy but I like to think it is as it is quite pricey. The food there was delicious as it always is and we walked away a little happier. Even the sun broke through after all the raining.
